INTERIORS MAKE MINE MODULAR Advantages Start With Installation Another advantage to carpet tile, Boodley-Buchanan adds, is a new system developed by Interface that has eliminated the need for glue in the installation process. With the new technology, the carpet tiles have four plastic squares placed in each corner that have adhesive on one side, which locks the carpet tiles together. Instead of needing to repair floor slabs that can be damaged when glued carpet is pulled up, the carpet tiles use no adhesive on the floor surface. "What this has done is eliminate the hidden expense of floor prep forever," Hadden says. While broadloom carpet typically needs to be replaced every seven to 10 years, carpet tile has a 20-year warranty, another factor that has made it an increasingly popular flooring option in higher education. "It might be a bit more expensive," says Bailard, of Pepperdine, "but it lasts longer, and instead of replacing the whole area, you can just replace one section of it."
